Marine Innovation using Novel Enzymes for waste Reduction and Valorisation of Algal biomass

Marine Innovation using Novel Enzymes for waste Reduction and Valorisation of Algal biomass MINERVA MINERVA aims to valorise underutilised seaweed biomass sustainably produced across Europe, to develop new high-value products and reduce waste in current processes. It will add value to brown algal biomass presently used at low efficiency, focused on bulk Ascophyllum (wild-harvest) and… Continue reading Marine Innovation using Novel Enzymes for waste Reduction and Valorisation of Algal biomass

Novel enhanced bioplastics from sustainable processing of seaweed

Novel enhanced bioplastics from sustainable processing of seaweed PlastiSea Conventional plastic materials are made from non-renewable resources and their pollution presents a global threat to marine environments. The EU recently voted for a complete ban of the most common single use plastics by 2021 which has significantly stimulated the interest in bio-based and biodegradable materials,… Continue reading Novel enhanced bioplastics from sustainable processing of seaweed
